About Portobello A C

Portobello Angling Club was founded in Dublin in 1995. The club has 18 members and is affiliated to the National Coarse Fishing Federation of Ireland (NCFFI). We also have close links with the Central Fisheries Board, the Eastern Region Fisheries Board and the Dublin Angling Initiative. The club enjoys a close relationship with our local tackle shop, Southside Angling, on Cork Street, Dublin 8.

Anyone can fish our matches

The club runs Spring and Winter Leagues in venues across Ireland, with 8 matches in each league. Matches usually take place on the first and third Sundays of each month. Anyone may fish these matches subject to a match fee of €5.

Matches across some of the best venues in Ireland

The club's matches take place on a wide variety of venues across counties Dublin, Wicklow, Offaly, Kildare, Carlow, Meath, Westmeath, Roscommon, Cavan, Monaghan and Louth, with our most popular venues being Killykeen, Eonish, Church Lake, Castle Lake, Lakelands Fishery, Lough Barnagrow, Blessington, Baird's Shore, Gaulmoylestown, Oaklands Lake and the Royal and Grand Canals.

Run by our members, for our members

The club is run by its members through an elected committee of five members who meet regularly to review club developments and activities.  The club's AGM and annual prize-giving takes place in January of each year.
